The dragon motif in the tattoo of this print seems to relate to Binnie's interest in the Dojoji temple, as does the very hot colour scheme and the rising stylized white smoke. The artist's fascination with tattoos has lasted throughout his career, culminating in the series 'One Hundred Shades of Ink of Edo' in which he pays tribute to woodblock print artists of the past by reusing some of their designs on contemporary models.
